DJI MAVIC CRASH // A DRONE’S short life & MYSTERIOUS SUICIDE

DJI MAVIC CRASH // A DRONE’S short life & MYSTERIOUS SUICIDE

It’s time to talk about my new DJI Mavic Pro Drone, and the mysterious self-induced crash that caused his unfortunate early death in the desert of Arizona.

My real life pilot husband joins me in reminiscing about the good times we had with ‘Monkey Boy’ the Mavic, as we patiently learned how to fly him in amazing test locations like San Diego, Colorado, and Sedona, Arizona.

We started out easy in learning all the basic commands to fly the Mavic Pro, and advancing to the more difficult ones as we progressed. Most of the progression was his, as I figured it’s best to let him fly in the more challenging places we visited. I was simply thrilled to finally have beautiful drone footage to edit into my travel videos!

Enjoy the beautiful aerial footage captured by our Mavic Pro in his last days before the crash, along with the actual crash footage, and our best explanation of the incident.

Stay tuned for a follow up to this video explaining what caused the Mavic Pro crash and what DJI ends up doing to repair our precious drone.

If you have any clue as to what might have happened to our Mavic to cause this crash please let me know by leaving a comment on the YouTube video, or here on the blog. Thanks!

Visiting Lume Cube // San Diego Vlog in Pacific Beach

Visiting Lume Cube // San Diego Vlog in Pacific Beach

Today I am visiting the offices of San Diego startup- Lume Cube– to learn more about their amazing 1500 lumens cube light. I’ve been experimenting with this fun, portable and waterproof light in recent videos, but now I have a chance to see a professional demo of the new accessories for it, including their color temperature correction and diffusing system- the Lighthouse.

I’ll also get to hear an exciting explanation from Riley Stricklin, their VP of Sales, of how they’re creating unique mounts and seeing the Lume Cube light used with DRONES.

LOOK AT THE LUME CUBES

This meeting comes alongside a little adventure to Pacific Beach- my beloved old neighborhood- for a spin around the hottest beach area in San Diego.

Canon G7X Mark II – Vlogging Camera ISSUES & SOLUTIONS

Canon G7X Mark II – Vlogging Camera ISSUES & SOLUTIONS

The Canon G7X Mark II is the latest and likely the best vlogging camera on the market. The Mark II upgrade includes a handful of excellent new features and capabilities, yet there are still a few issues and concerns surrounding the question of whether or not the Mark II is the best point and shoot vlogging camera.

Check it out for yourself with some G7X live footage and audio tests, as well as my own solutions to two of the main Canon G7X Mark II Vlogging Camera issues- the auto focus, the battery life, and the audio.

WATCH THE VIDEO ▶︎ Canon G7X Mark II – Vlogging Camera ISSUES & SOLUTIONS

Enjoy the info and comment below with your thoughts on the Mark II or even the original G7X. Is it worth the upgrade? Do you have issues either auto focus or audio? Are you on team Canon or team Sony? I love to hear your thoughts!

PS. If this shot does go in and out of focus it’s because I have it set at 1.8- which delivers such a shallow depth of field that my movement is a bit too much.

Is Canon G7X the BEST Vlogging Camera?

Is Canon G7X the BEST Vlogging Camera?

Canon makes the best cameras, and their top of the line point and shoot is no exception. Here is my complete Canon G7X review and comparison to my Canon T6s DSLR camera to see which wins the award ‘Best Vlogging Camera’. Of course, this was all taken into considered with making travel videos in mind, and I found that the G7X is a superior travel camera with it’s portability, yet high end performance.

Join me as I test this great vlogging camera in San Diego with field tests from the beach, the backyard and some clips from last week’s video at Coachella

In this video I cover the G7X sensor size, focal length, flip up screen, tactical dial features, image quality in low light, ability to create bokeh or blurry background shots, grip issues, audio issues and features, accessory options, a comparison to my Canon Rebel T6S, and more!

MEETING THE DJI PHANTOM 4 DRONE

MEETING THE DJI PHANTOM 4 DRONE

DJI has just released the Phantom 4- a major upgrade from the Phantom 3, and said to be the BEST DRONE EVER! I’m stepping into the drone world at a wonderful moment, and was super stoked to have my first ever drone experience with the super sleek and smart Phantom 4 drone by DJI Global.

This photos accounts for my full tech review..

Just kidding 😉

In this video I meet up my new friend from YouTube Creator Day – Colin Smith from PhotoshopCAFE. He is a master at drones, videography, photography, and of course Photoshop. You can find tons of excellent video tutorials and Adobe trainings on his YouTube channel. He has also just released a new training video on how to expertly fly the Phantom 4 drone.

DJI OSMO Camera: New Rig & Accessories

DJI OSMO Camera: New Rig & Accessories

Check out the sweet new rig I put together for my DJI OSMO camera! The main reason I had not yet hooked up external audio to my 3-axis gimbal OSMO was due to the fact I didn’t have the universal mount and extension arm- both are DJI parts created to hold additional OSMO accessories.

So I ordered these parts and put the OSMO rig together in this video, creating a more balanced system and better placement for the iPhone monitor.

I then attached the Rode Pro Shotgun mic and took it for a spin around the RSA 2016 trade show floor to gather a bit of DJI OSMO footage. Enjoy the update!

Viewing Las Vegas With The DJI OSMO

If you’ve checked out the recent series of CES 2016 videos on AMaeTV, then you may have watched me win, pick up and begin learning to film with my DJI OSMO.  It was a whirlwind good time in Las Vegas and I was happy to have this final, sunny day to gently cruise the Las Vegas strip, filming with my amazing new 3 axis gimbal camera.

Las Vegas Strip Video

In this video I continue to test out the DJI OSMO and all of its cool features in the Entertainment Capital Of The World on the first day after CES 2016. The camera’s 3 axis gimbal provides super steady footage, while the joystick allows for flowing movement.

It’s now time to enjoy some relaxing footage shot with the DJI OSMO along the Las Vegas strip. Let me know what you think of the camera and it’s unique steady motion look.
